Vixen BT-125-A Binocs: What Eyepieces Do You Use?

Hello! Not much traffic on these beasts in the Bino Forums. I have the f/6.08 version of these binoculars with the 1.25" interchangeable eyepiece feature. I have discovered that many of my 1.25" eyepieces will not come to focus in the BT125's. (Fortunately, 16mm Naglers do! Wow!) Looking for a pair of eyepieces for the lowest power + widest possible field of view. And I'm talking about "apparent" field of view, not true field. For example, I'd love to use a pair of 40mm eyepieces with a 60-degree AFOV, but alas, nobody makes them. So, does anyone out there have a report on what low power/wide field eyepieces they use and that will come to focus in these big binocs? If so, I'd love to hear about them! Thanks!
